Once we enter the month of December, not a day goes by that you don’t see on television or the Internet a whole bunch of advertisements for things to buy. Things to give to your children or your loved ones. Items for your beloved wife.

This period follows Black Friday which has already delivered you to the consumer society with all the associated traps.

Marketers are full of inventiveness every year to push you to buy more and more things you don’t need. Amazon is a good example of all the incredible offers you get for things you didn’t even want before.

However, after seeing 40% or 50% off, if not more on some sites, many end up cracking. After all, these seem like incredible opportunities that you’d be crazy to turn down.

The American dollar was designed to be spent. The consumer society is the perfect complement

Anyway, if you choose to save your money, it will mechanically lose value. The purchasing power of $1,000 has lost over 85% of its value since 1971:

Buying power of $1,000 over time, 1971–2021

That’s pretty incredible when you think about it. Rather than losing purchasing power, you might as well enjoy it. After all, you work hard, you deserve to buy the latest iPhone 13.

Tim Cook even told you on stage that it’s the most powerful iPhone yet. You’d be crazy to turn it down. By continuing to perpetually follow this path, you find yourself stuck in the middle of the consumer society that constantly pushes you to spend the fruits of your hard-earned labor.

You must understand that everything in the current monetary and financial system is designed to keep you spending your money. The U.S. dollar was designed to be spent, or you will mechanically lose money.

Realizing this is not an easy thing to do. Bitcoin is precisely what helps many people to open their eyes. Bitcoin is the best savings technology in the world. A NgU technology that has been steadily increasing in price since its inception. Those who put the fruits of their labor safely into the world’s most secure decentralized network are always rewarded for their patience.

Bitcoin is a major paradigm shift that helps you see the current monetary and financial system for what it is: flawed and not fixable.

The major paradigm shift represented by Bitcoin gives you for the first time the opportunity to break out of the trap of the consumer society

Once you are guaranteed that the fruits of your labor cannot be unfairly debased, you can opt for low-time preference. Since 1 BTC today will still be worth 1 BTC in 21 million units in 5, 10, or 20 years, you have no reason to spend your money on useless things that the consumer society pushes you to buy.

You learn to develop your critical thinking skills by remembering the Bitcoin motto: “Don’t Trust, Verify”. You choose to accumulate as much BTC as possible with your future in mind. You can afford to do this because the Bitcoin system is protective of its users.

You finally have a way out of an unfair system and a consumer society. This is something that is underestimated in the benefits of Bitcoin.

Once you find out what Bitcoin is all about, you’ll feel like you’ve never accumulated enough. As you accumulate more and more BTC, you will protect your future a little more each day. When you have to spend money, you’ll do the only right thing: you’ll think about whether you need the item.

Sometimes the answer will be yes. But when you do, it will be a real choice on your part, because you will have learned to step back from the consumer society and listen to your real needs.

And you will see that they are much less than what you imagined until then. You will then have regained control over your money and will be able to live your life as you wish, free from all the pressures of today’s society. To get to that point, it is up to you and you alone to start reclaiming your decision-making power.

Bitcoin is not mandatory to become aware of this, but it is an incredible accelerator, and above all, your best weapon to protect yourself from it.
